Philosophy of Performance is a far-reaching subject that puts Music Theatre in context as a constantly evolving art form. The curriculum will focus on performance individuality and the development of diverse artistic philosophies and imperatives relating to a broader social, cultural and historical context both on the national and international level.
Philosophy of Performance 1 will develop an understanding of the form in Australia and internationally, from 1850 to Contemporary work. Students will learn about key artists and shows and develop critical thinking regarding live and recorded performance and placing performance within broader conceptual contexts.
